Cefn Community Council was created in 1974, it represents the community and is classed as the first tier of Local Government – The grassroots.

The Community Council is limited in what it does by law in accordance with the Local Government Act 1972 and is subject to internal and external audit. It is not Wrexham County Borough Council. 

The villages we represent are  – Cefn Mawr, Rhosymedre, Plas Madoc, Newbridge, Penybryn and Acrefair

Sixteen local people form Cefn Community Council, which is split into four wards, these are:

  • Cefn 
  • Plas Madoc
  • Rhosymedre & Cefn Bychan
  • Acrefair & Penybryn

Community Councillors stand for election because they care about the community and wish to see a difference being made. They are not paid but they can claim remuneration fee. All of our councillors forgo this fee and have done so for a number of years.
